KCRW Presents: Bahamas

July 11, 2012Afie Jurvanen first made a name for himself playing guitar for Feist. Since then, he's reinvented himself in the band Bahamas and released an album on Jack Johnson's Brushfire Records. Watch Jurvanen perform "I Got You Babe" on Morning Becomes Eclectic.

Bahamas' music has really grown on us at KCRW. The group is led by Afie Jurvanen, who previously played guitar with Feist and is such an aficionado of the instrument that he doesn't even have a bassist in his band. Instead, he's accompanied by a drummer and a pair of backup singers who reinvent his gorgeous pop songs in a live setting.

Watch Jurvanen perform "I Got You Babe" — from Bahamas' recent album Barchords — on Morning Becomes Eclectic, then go check out the entire performance at KCRW.com.
